A Freebie for Hybrid Card-makers...

Last week I wanted to make a birthday card for my sister with a cupcake on it, she loves cupcakes... I didn't have any cupcake stamps though, but then I remembered the cupcake doodles I made in Illustrator a couple of years ago. (I made them for a kit about friendship, my part of the kit has for a long time been a freebie on my blog, you can find it here)

I chose to print out the cupcakes on white paper, my paper was not as thick as cardstock but thicker than copy-paper. I then colored the doodles with ordinary pencils (I tried ZIG brushables too, but didn't like the result on that particular paper I used). As I now had a lot of cupcakes I made two cards. Both cards have Kraft paper as base.

Here's the freebie, a small collection of doodles, that you can print out and color any way you want to. You can even color them in Photoshop (or any other software that can handle png-files) and then print them out. You can download here.

Have fun:)

Some Birthday Cards...

I've haven't done much scrapbooking lately, only these two birthday cards.

The first one with papers from Melissa Frances (Candie) and Bo Bunny (Crazy Love). White embossingpowder, Fiskars punch and fluid chalk (chestnut roan). Kraft cardstock, Bazzill.

The second one, for my nephews 9th birthday, with papers from Studio Calico (Elementary Collection). Thickers; Cinnamon by American Crafts. Grey cardstock base.

At the moment I'm eagerly waiting for a package with papers and embellishments that I've ordered the other day. Mostly October Afternoon stuff; from their new collection 5&DIME...
